Flip Side Of Celebrations

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I don’t recall footballers being gymnastic
In days of Keegan, Gray or Hurst
They didn’t want to mess their hair up
(the perms had got there first)

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Lanky strikers in second skin nylon shorts
Scored some goals that were fantastic
But the only thing that jumped and twirled
Was the overworked elastic

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The carthorse defence replaced with cartwheels
Somersaults celebrate a hat-trick
Managers can only watch the human gyroscopes
And complain of feeling sick
